Does Matter Exist?
Quora Question: "Does Matter Exist?"
I am a member of Quora and regularly answer questions there. I recently answered the question “Does Matter Exist?” and I thought that my answer was so central to the way I think about the Universe that I had to write an article to elaborate on the answer I provided in Quora.

Opinions are not truth
I began by defining Epistemology, Metaphysics and Philosophy because these are the approaches that other people would use to answer the question and I wanted to state from the onset that all of these approaches are simply opinions.
It doesn't matter how eloquent or beautiful an opinion like Quantum Mechanics or Relativity might be they are still opinions and ultimately fall short and fail to explain the Universe the Scientists are so keen to understand.
It doesn't matter how many people support an opinion to the degree that it is classed as a justifiable belief, in my books an opinion is still not truth.
Generating Right Brain Activity
I then explain by means of a metaphor how I view the scientific approach to seeking truth by saying it is like asking a computer to describe its user.
Making a statement like this throws the analytical thinker into turmoil because it requires right brain activity and up to this point they have been tucked in safely behind their logical thinking comfort zone content with their limited knowledge.
I am now asking for both right and left brain to participate in the discussion.
Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle
Just as quickly, I return them to their comfort zone and talk about Werner Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle explaining how the act of observation affects the results of all experiments. I bring in Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle here because I want to show how scientists continues to chase after clouds even when the evidence is staring them right in the face telling them that they have reached a cul-de-sac.
I explain what I mean by citing the famous Double Slit Experiments in Quantum Physics during which the electron behaves as a particle when observed and a wave when not observed. I point out the obvious conclusion for anyone thinking with a balanced right and left brain and hold this up as my argument for how doggedly adhering to old limiting beliefs simply frustrates progress.
The observer and the object are connected
If something is affected by observation does that not in itself point to the fact that the observer and the object are connected in some way? This seems obvious to me but not to the scientists who simply go back to the drawing board because they cannot see outside the box.
It is my opinion that we and everything in the Universe are connected. There is a collective mind that holds all that we perceive as real and it is the mind that creates the illusion that we are separate. Science proves the connection exists and fails to appreciate the power of thought and how thought affects every observation. Thought itself is vibration and it is subtle differences in the frequency of thought that gives rise to the diversity we experience.
Sound is the vocalisation of thought. Sight is the visualisation of thought. In fact every sense is designed to materialise thought so that we can interact with it.
Is it therefore such a leap in thinking to hold look at yourself in the mirror and appreciate that your physical body is a creation of mind materialised out of the vibration of thought?
Matter is thought materialised
We are stuck in the illusion because we choose to believe in the illusion that keeps us separate and in conflict. We continue to hold fast to beliefs that no longer serve us and in doing so we imagine that matter really exists because the mind that created the illusion continues to feed us the thoughts that maintain the illusion and protect the ego which is its ultimate goal.
Matter is an illusion created by mind and the stuff of matter is thought. It is the frequency of thought that dictates the appearance of matter. The connection between thought and matter is clearly demonstrated by science which has shown that when we interact with matter through observation we affect it. I also propose that we also create it.
